Remembering September 11

September 11 is sure to evoke a number of reflective moments, among them the sacrifice made by so many of New York's fire and police police personnel in responding to the World Trade Center towers as well as in the following days. Such were days and moments that urged the nation to consider the value and role of its public servants.

On the seventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks, author Daniel P. Smith will be at the Downers Grove Library discussing the daily lives of Chicago's officers, who, like their Big Apple brethren, are also called to serve and protect even amidst tragedy. While Chicago's officers have never faced the horror that befell New York on 9/11, they, much like officers throughout the country, encounter each day's struggle to balance duty and humanity, reflection and relief.

Join the author for a candid conversation about the human side of life with the power of God on one's hip.
